Be very very careful when going for these beauty treatments!
We all love to relax and splurge in the beauty salons, after all who doesn’t like to feel fresh and pampered by the beauty treatments, but do you know some of these beauty treatments may be potentially damaging to your health? We are about to tell about some of them and the dangers they may be posing to your health:
While we all love to just relax and get our feet buffed up, but if proper hygiene is not maintained by the salon you are visiting, then you have high risk of getting viral, bacterial and fungal infections. Our advice, take your own tools to the salon, that is much safer than getting this treatment by the tools of the salon which have passed through many feet, and also go during the morning hours, when the general cleanliness of the salon and the tools and tubs is much better.
Manicures too can be dangerous, again you may get bacterial and fungal infections, and you may even suffer from permanent nail disfigurement, if proper hygiene is not maintained by the salon staff. Here also, we advise that you take your own tools to the salon. The gel manicures of today can be even worse, as the UV-A rays through which your nails have to go through, can contribute to risk factors for skin cancer.
3 Hair Smoothening treatments
We all love to flaunt the frizz free and tangle free smooth hair, but the Keratin treatments and especially Brazilian blowouts can be quite dangerous as formaldehyde is released when you get that Brazilian blowout, which when inhaled can cause respiratory problems, eye problems and can even cause problems in the nervous system.
4 False eyelashes
Falsies may get you those long, thick and super gorgeous eye lashes, but they can also give eye infections. The glue which is used to stick those false eyelashes, can cause some serious eye infections and the constant pulling out of the lashes may even lead you to pull out your real lashes.
5 Laser hair removal
Getting a permanent hair removing solution may tempt us to go for this expensive treatment, but do proper research before going for it. Although, these days the treatment has become safer than earlier, but we advise that you go to only certified professionals, otherwise a wrong treatment of a high power laser on wrong skin type may end up giving you rashes and bruises. Also never forget to wear the protective eyeglasses when going for laser hair removal.
6 Fish Pedicures
Fish pedicures definitely sound and feel fascinating, but we would really ask you to take this risk at your own will. The fish which nibble away the dead skin off your feet can transfer the infection from one person to another, especially if the water is not changed periodically. The risk of getting deadly infections, such as HIV and hepatitis, rise manifold in this beauty treatment.
7 Botox injections
Botox injections are very popular as they help you in achieving younger looking skin with visibly reduced signs of aging such as wrinkles and lines. And although they may be safe, if you go to a certified professional, but if you try to save money by going to an uncertified clinic, you may end up with bruised and swelled up skin, and can even lead to botched results like droopy eyes and weakened muscles.
